1995 GMC Jimmy Back Hatch Wont Open

My problem is that the back hatch window wont open, i press the button and nothing happens. Even when i press the rear hatch button nothing happens. The only way i can get it open is if i took off the back panel and pulled this lever [img][/img]. The lever is attached to this [img][/img]. In the second, i had a chance to replace it but that didn't do the job and now i am stumped. Any help from you experts? I'm a noob at all of this, so bare with me here.

If the tailgate has been used a lot, the wiring that goes from the body to the gate has broken. You will see a weatherproof "boot" connecting the body and tailgate together, and the wires are in there.

My bet is you'll find a broken wire in there, as it drove me nuts on my 1989. Sometimes it would work, and other times it wouldn't.

I can't lock the rear hatch door on my yukon. There is no key lock and the remote button locks all the other doors but the rear hatch remains unlocked. Also the button on the inside of the vehicle does not...

The lock is stuck in the "locked" position.
When you close the hatch, it is jamming the latch hook into the wrong area.

Manually open the hatch. Unlock the hatch (even tho the hatch is already open). there are two bolts holding the metal "loop", the loop has moved. Adjust the metal loop and close the hatch / lock it, etc.
